Comments on the course

I took this online Summer A and it was a solid online course. Discussion posts were actually helpful, and quizzes prepared you for the exams. The course is very exam-heavy, but the exams are fair and there are a couple points of extra credit by doing study guides (which are helpful anyways)

Course Content

Linguistics is fun! There was a lot more technical stuff than I expected and some more memorization than ideal, but overall it was cool stuff

Comments on the professor

Dr. Garner was approachable and encouraged people come to her office hours

Advice

Always do the study guides for extra credit! The textbook is helpful but not as important as the videos

Comments on the course

As a lin major, this course was required and I found it to be very easy and interesting. Be prepared to make weird sounds and speak during exams! Don't buy the textbook, Dr. Garner has great recorded lectures with practice exam questions at the end!

Comments on the professor

Dr. Garner is so nice and was always helpful in the discussions. Be sure to do the study guide and email it to them, it's extra credit which can really help on the midterm and final.

Comments on the course

This class was fast-paced over the summer, with a quiz or two every week. However, the quizzes were easy and I never got more than one question wrong. I took this class 100% online, so I had to stay on top of lectures, but they weren't too time-consuming and I could watch all of one chapter's videos in one sitting. There were two exams, a mid-term and a final. The only thing that sucked was that the final was cumulative. There is a lot of information to take in but Dr. Garner provided very helpful study guides for each exam.

Comments on the professor

Dr. Garner is very passionate about linguistics and made the course interesting even it was 100% virtual. I would take this class again but in person to see more of their personality.

Advice

Do the study guide they make since it's extra credit if you email it back completed.
